Posted · Need Profile PLA AA 0.8 Nozzle for Ultimaker 3

Hopefully my title makes sense. I am having a hard time trying to get Cura to behave. I installed a brand new AA 0.8 nozzle to print PLA at a faster rate. Before this I always used an AA 0.4 and my prints are great for it. I have some items that I need that quality isn't a big deal and I figured a 0.3 or 0.4 profile would be perfect for it. However as soon as I selected AA 0.8 on Extruder 2 I only have 1 option "Fast - 0.2mm". Not exactly what I was looking for.

 

Does anyone have a profile that will work with my UM3 for PLA that will give me a 0.3 and/or 0.4 option? Thanks!

    Just use "fast 0.8" and change layer height to 0.3 or 0.4.  That's it.

     

    There's no magic in the profiles.  You don't need to tweak 5 other parameters - simply increase layer height some more.

    That's because you have a AA0.4 core on the other side. As long as you have both cores active cura only gives you profiles to print with both cores together. 

     

    Since the 0.2 layer height is the only height both cores can print, cura hides the other one. 

     

    If you disable the AA0.4 printcore cura shows you all the profiles for the AA0.8 core, so that you can use the 0.3mm and 0.4mm layer height profiles.

    Yep, that was the answer. Disable the AA 0.4 core and now I can use the AA 0.8 core. Now I can print at 0.3mm and 0.4mm. Thanks so much!
